Nina is an emerging artist from the Gold Coast. Inspired by surrealism and comic books, She took to painting as a form of meditation and distraction after leaving the work force as a Photojournalist.
I am a mother and fulltime carer for my son. After leaving the workforce as a photographer, I decided to start painting again. I have always had a sketch book close by, but had never used oil paints and once I finished my first piece, I was addicted. When I get time to myself, this is what I want to do. I realized this is so beneficial for my sanity and my self worth. Finishing a painting feels more rewarding than anything and even better if your work is exhibited and/or sold.
It certainly doesn’t come easy, I put everything into my work and am very hard on myself. There have been times when I have thrown turps all over the canvas and wiped off weeks of work only to start again. I’ve cut paintings up and thrown them out and sometimes I get so frustrated that I could be mistaken for a potty mouthed sailor.
A lot of my work consists of ‘Taking the piss’ and I always make sure its visually appealing to the viewer and I love it when people can have a bit of a laugh about life with me.
